Once upon a time, the world was thrown into chaos by The Lost Ones” — people from another world with special powers known.
To maintain peace, “The Executioners” are ordered to kill “The Lost Ones” without mercy.
This is the story of an unlikely pair: the Executioner Menou, who tries to be pure, honest, and carry out her mission — and “The Lost One” Akari, who is impossible to kill.
Where will the path lead them?
